Local writing contests

Most of us write for the process; to learn about ourselves and the world around us.  With that mentality in mind, the process is enough. However, a thrilling bonus is to have your writing out in the big bright world for others to experience and hopefully learn something as well. A collective process can certainly shed more light than a scattered array of island writers.  Here are some local opportunities to get your work out there so we can all commune with words.
